My daughter participates weekly in a chorus, and this weekend, she performed in a concert with that chorus. The usual introductions were made, and then the mayor took the podium to say the usual bit about how important children are. This, however, is more meaningful than most politicians introducing a show because his children are also part of the chorus as are a school board member and a Massachusetts Teacher’s Union official. I guess this is the place to be for political connections. I think my daughter just loves singing and performing for an audience.
